One of the 20th Century's most subversive comic masterpieces, this "Comedy of Horrors" is a merciless satire of religious hypocrisy, middle-class British morality, and blind faith in authority. The McLeavy's are in mourning, but young Hal and his partner-in-crime need someplace to stash their loot. When Scotland Yard's finest comes sniffing about, no one escapes suspicion, from the naughty nurse to dear old gardening dad. And where did Mrs. McLeavy's body go? Orton's wicked stew of Oscar Wilde and Kafka is sexy, sharp-witted, and shocking.
